The MSU Skyliners Attack team were assembled in March of 2015, guided by Coach Derrick Motley and Coach JR, they put together one of the best seasons in MSU history. As we continue to develop and grow we are looking forward to a highly anticpated 2016 campaign. Follow us to keep track of these amazing young men as they climb to greatness. The MSU Skyliner organization was created in 1995 by Arthur Pierson as a non-profit (501c3) program. Coach Pierson decided to bring the Skyliners to as an outlet for Plainfield, New Jersey and surrounding area youth as a life vehicle to gain student-athletes attention to urban issues as well as to continue to learn the game of basketball. Over the years, The Skyliners have grown to include at most points over 8 teams a year. The (M)iddlesex (S)omerset (U)nion Skyliners have expanded to include kids from all over New Jersey and even Pennsylvania at times. We are and will continue to be a developmental program. If you are looking to win a national title, then we are probably not the program for you. Skill development, in game experience, and life lessons are at the top of our list. We stress education and family values more than basketball wins and losses. Our kids are mentored to want whats best out of life and to work hard to achieve it. Our program has an educational tutor that secures a classroom twice a week for those that need assistance, and all of the coaches phone numbers are available to them if they need to talk. last but not least, our Motto since 1995 and continues to this day is
"We are not trying to make money out of you.
We are trying to make a Player and model citizen out of you!”
